Senator James Sanders, Jr. holds press conference in support of When in Need Foundation
Senator Sanders also viewed the visit as a time for personal growth and development regarding other cultures and felt warmly adopted by the Nigerian people. He was even given the title of chief by four kings there.
Senator Sanders was proud to work with the When In Need Foundation on the Nigerian mission. WIN provides grants for students and young professionals to continue their education. They support schools, orphanages and various hostels that assist the less fortunate. WIN also organizes health and education fairs.
At the upcoming press conference, Sanders will provide an informational update to community members in the 10th Senatorial District on the current state of Nigeria and what supplies and resources are needed there and how we collectively can provide support.
Senator Sanders hopes to encourage Americans and Nigerian-Americans to help the beautiful African Nation and would like to work with representatives from the Consulate General of Nigeria in New York to accomplish this goal.
